Hi my friends, I am using ros-fuerte on 12.04. I am trying to compile the example from which runs on ros-groovy. I have created my own CMakeLists.txt in order to make, however i encountered the following problem after running "make":

> mkdir -p bin
cd build && cmake -Wdev -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=`rospack find rosbuild`/rostoolchain.cmake  ..

Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:28 (rosbuild_link_boost)

make: *** [all] Error 1

The CMakeLists.txt is :

    cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.4.6)

# Set the build type.  Options are:
#  Coverage       : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization, w/ code-coverage
#  Debug          : w/ debug symbols, w/o optimization
#  Release        : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  RelWithDebInfo : w/ debug symbols, w/ optimization
#  MinSizeRel     : w/o debug symbols, w/ optimization, stripped binaries
#set(ROS_BUILD_TYPE RelWithDebInfo)


#set the default path for built executables to the "bin" directory
#set the default path for built libraries to the "lib" directory

#uncomment if you have defined messages
#uncomment if you have defined services

#common commands for building c++ executables and libraries
#rosbuild_add_library(${PROJECT_NAME} src/example.cpp)
#target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} another_library)
rosbuild_link_boost(point_cloud_test thread)
rosbuild_add_executable(point_cloud_test src/point_cloud_test.cpp)
#target_link_libraries(point_cloud_test libboost.lib)


include ("${VTK_USE_FILE}")

I think the problem will be editing target_link_libraries, but i do not know which library to add and how to add it. Could someone help to give some instructions? Thanks a lot in advance!

Problem solved by: rosbuild_add_boost_directories() rosbuild_add_library(point_cloud_test src/point_cloud_test.cpp) rosbuild_link_boost(point_cloud_test thread system) rosbuild_add_executable(point_cloud_test src/point_cloud_test.cpp)
